To Cathy and Jackie
life affirming energy flowing values bounce right off the page and
right out of each video. I found it very meaningful when you say you are
not doing the practice to write a paper.....'I'm doing it as a
Your long term
relationship using your own Living Educational Theory, values and
commitment for me is very inspiring and has ignited my own desire to go
deeply into reflective practice to improve my practice. I like the
notion of what you are writing about, not how you write it.
your experience as a mentor come through all the time with the care and
love you reveal in facial expressions and comments. In my notes I have
written 'transformative potential of encounter' - the evidence of that
is clear throughout the videos, reflections and writing. Page 4.... you
mention influence and being influenced..... you are listening deeply,
your listening is embodied and you are clearly willing to embrace the
transformative power of improving your practice.
you are a total inspiration at your deep commitment to Living
Educational Theory, Action research and improving your practice. I love
how you find small pockets of time in a busy schedule to do so!
your video planning beforehand would help the viewer. Have the camera
at eye level so that we can see your face full on to catch all your
expressions and body language. Light must be in front of you not behind
you. The camera on whatever device you are using must be secure and not
move. (I found it distracted me from the gems I heard from you). The
lighting and colours were comfortable in the video where you wore black
and grey. It was pleasing to the eye (for me that is important as a
creative person). I loved your cat coming and going, it added to the
beautiful personality I felt coming through. I also loved the
reflections in a wooden hut, it made me think you went off to a
'hermitage' where you could reflect.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading your paper. Just check some spelling and sentence construction page 7 and 9 mainly.
have had a huge impact on me to improve my practice and be mindful of
'the transformative potential of encounter' when I am a
reflective practitioner IN relationships, like the two of you are. I
believe your paper meets the publishing criteria. Thank you for the
effort you have put into it.
